Student Strand – Teach to Become an Agent of Change
The Student Strand introduces college undergraduate language majors and minors to world language education as a viable and meaningful career path. The workshop empowers participants to become agents of positive change in students’ lives through the teaching of languages, cultures, and global competency. Participants will explore and examine the application processes, entrance exams, credentialing programs, support mechanisms, as well as high leverage teaching practices, lesson design, teaching philosophies, standards, and framework. Guided by the co-facilitators and several inspiring guest speakers, participants will learn by doing, and engage in group work, role-play, interviews, projects and presentations. They will also have the opportunity to interact and network with the participants of the summer seminar.
Facilitators: Alfredo Varela / Carmen Ríos-Alverez
